If you are growing uncomfortable with how the color of your smile has changed, you may feel compelled to switch to a toothpaste that claims to whiten teeth. If this proves less effective than you hoped, you may choose to try a store bought whitening kit. Patients who have grown concerned about noticeable teeth stains may see that this approach also offers more limited changes than they wished to see. What can you do at this point is talk with your Riverside, CA dentist’s office about professional teeth whitening treatment. A professional treatment can take care of stains that have proven difficult to remove. To find the right treatment approach for you, we can discuss the benefits of scheduling an in-office whitening procedure as well as talk you through the use of a take-home whitening kit from your dentist.

Have Your Teeth Become Dull Or Discolored?

Dental discoloration will become a problem for many people through the years. Many foods and drinks we enjoy leave particles on our teeth that can change their color. These particles will accumulate and gradually leave teeth dull or discolored, and no longer as attractive as you remembered them. By the time you notice just how much your smile has changed, it may be necessary to find a treatment that can help with more than just superficial stains that have recently formed.

Scheduling A Professional Whitening Treatment

You can determine if a take-home whitening kit is right for you, or if you should set up a time to come in for an in-office whitening treatment. An in-office whitening treatment can be completed in just one or two hours, and it can produce dazzling results that over the counter products fail to offer. If you would prefer to whiten your teeth at home, your dentist can provide you with a whitening kit that leads to improvements that match in-office care. Patients who choose this approach tend to see the results they want in around two weeks.

Is Your Smile Affected By Intrinsic Discoloration?

Discoloration can occur because of changes within the tooth. This may occur because of certain medications that you have taken, or because of a past dental injury. To respond to these problems, we can recommend different cosmetic dental services. Tooth bonding treatment and the placement of porcelain veneers can both be effective when responding to intrinsic discoloration.
